In a forest located in Ethiopia’s largest region – Oromia, men skillfully climb tall trees in a forest to collect pure honey.
The Harenna Forest is located in a highland forest region and forms a major part of the Bale Mountains National Park (BMNP), in the Oromia Region, southeastern Ethiopia.
The Danish ambassador to Ethiopia, Djibouti, Sudan, South Sudan and the African Union (A.U.) spent a weekend there and shared photos of her time out there:
“Wonderful forest honey, freshly collected by a brave man in Harena forest, Bale mountains. Great weekend get-away after a busy week,” Mette Thygesen wrote in a tweet.
It was accompanied by photos of a a honeycomb, and how the climbers make their way up the tree to fetch the honey.
